Our Summer of Slick comes to an end with a perplexing problem of personal peril! Someone is gunning for the big man in local public radio, which can only mean one thing: Someone has some time on his hands! How will our Great Gumshoe handle the Perils of Public Radio?
Your standard-issue tough-taling, hard-as-nails private eye doesn't get to solve a lot of murders. Those tend to go to the cops, and even Metropolisville's Finest notice a little thing like unrequested help from their old pal Slick Bracer. But when the murder hasn't quite happened yet, and a big fat fee is one the table, just about anything is possible... including Slick taking... The Giant Nap!
Take one hard-boiled, poorly cliched private eye, add a mysterious missing artifact and stir in six or seven of history's most culturally insesitive accents since Hogan's Heroes went off the air and you have the recepie for mystery, mayhem and a sweeping apology from our legal department. Here for your dining and dancing pleasure.... the mystery of The Ruby Tooth!
He has always been a lone wolf... a solitary coyote... or at least an only puppy. But today, Slick Bracer, PI is getting himself a partner! Will double the dick mean double the trouble? Will the citizens of Metropolisville be safe at last? Or will the newest cast member have a life expectancy of a red-shirted extra on Star Trek? Would it give you a hint if we mentioned this is the Mystery of Some Murdered Guy?
Metropolisville's most manly man of mystery takes of a crazed dognapping ring, an even more crazed client, a police detective who is also... um... crazed and a secretary who is also at least slightly crazed. I sense a theme. A funky theme, with some horns and a lot of bass. Get your bad selves ready for The Case of the Kidnapped Canine!
Get ready for the Summer of Slick, as Decoder Ring Theatre proudly presents a full set of Erik Deckers' Slick Bracer, starring Peter Nicol as Slick! Action thrills! Mysterious chills! And the DRT ensemble having fun trying to bust up poor Peter in the middle of his lines. Good times! This week: one dead restaurateur and five or six desperately unlikely suspects somehow adds up to.... A Four Star Murder!
